Top 10 Island Resorts In Thailand - Updated 2024

| 5 min read

Thailand is located in Southeast Asia and is well-known for its beautiful tropical beaches, surf spots, ancient ruins, fascinating royal palaces and ornate temples to Buddha. Its capital is Bangkok, a mixture of modern skyscrapers next to traditional canal-side communities. The city is also famous for the Emerald Buddha Temple and Wat Arun, Wat Pho temples and the Grand Palace. Pattaya is home to modern beach resorts and water parks. Formerly a small fishing village, this all changed in the 1960s when hotels started lining up on the beach. However, the Wat Phra Yai Temple with its golden Buddha still looks out over Pattaya. For golfers, the area has a number of designer golf courses.

With many things to do in Thailand, you’ll undoubtedly want to visit soon. For a memorable time, why not stay in an island resort? Here are the top island resorts in Thailand.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) recent guest reviews, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and island location. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 18, 2024.
